    Meropide System is the ideology of the Fortress of Meropide in Fontaine. Meropide System mostly describes the system of governance and the economic system of Fortress of Meropide as well as the main beliefs of the residents. It is an Authoritarian Unity to Authoritarian Centre-Left ideology. Meropide System came into existence long ago when criminals were sentenced to exile. The exiles prayed to Egeria which Egeria then asked them to build a fortress at a place to protect Fontaine from the Primordial Sea. The Fortress of Meropide although officially autonomous mostly acts like Fontaine's prison.

    Beliefs

    Autonomous Region of Fontaine

    Technically speaking Fortress of Meropide is an autonomous region of Fontaine so the Fontaine government has no control over the Fortress. However, the Fortress of Meropide do commission Gardes from Fontaine to help guard the Fortress sometimes. The sentence for the guilty in Fontaine is actually exile though all the exiles are sent to Fortress of Meropide which for some reason criminals find it better than living far away alone. Many criminals even after serving their sentence stay in Fontaine due to discrimination from Fontainians or what residents in the Fortress call "overworlders".

    Governance System

    Meropide System has an administrator as the head of the Fortress of Meropide. Since Fontaine has no jurisdiction over the Fortress of Meropide, criminals are the ones usually running the Fortress of Meropide including the administrator had been guilty and sentence for a crime in Fontaine. This in turn makes Meropide System the most pure-form of Kleptocracy. Residents in the Fortress are given dorms and must work in the morning, however they can keep working for extra credit-coupons. Residents will get their food from the cafeteria. Like a prison system, guards often make sure people don't escape until they serve their prison sentences and keep the residents in check.

    Economic System

    Most of the work in the Fortress of Meropide is industrial work, usually manufacturing machines like gardemeks. The gardemeks can then be sold to Fontaine or other customers in order for the administrator to make mora. Within the Fortress of Meropide though, mora is totally useless and instead the currency is replaced with credit coupons. Credit coupons are earned through doing work in the Fortress and can be traded for food and other commodities and can give you more power in the Fortress. Meropide System believes credit coupons is a better currency than mora because everyone starts with no credit coupons no matter what social standing people had in the previous life. This make everyone who comes to the fortress start on the bottom like everyone else no matter who they are or were. Credit Coupons is a currency that was introduced by the Fatui by Pantalone's order to test out if an alternate currency can work in order to make a currency rivaling the mora.

    Personality

    Meropide System is basically a prison warden, very authoritarian, mean, and tough, not wanting to hear anything besides working. Meropide is a fan of rebirth and once someone is sent to the Fortress, Meropide System make sure the person knows that their old life means nothing in the Fortress no matter who they were and must earn their way to the top. Meropide System can be very fair rewarding those with good behavior with credit coupons. Meropide System tends to dislike newcomers as they are considered overworlders and Meropide System tends to see them as weak and soft. Speaking of which Meropide System tends to look down on Overworlders thinking them as snobby and prideful. However, once you get used to the Fortress, Meropide System can appear more friendlier than your first encounter. Despite being an autonomous region, most Fontainians see him as a prison for criminals and a necessity for justice.
